Philosophy of Emotions (Intensive Course)



Contentwise, this seminar aims at introducing classical theories and problems in the philosophy of emotions in the first part. In the second part we will learn about a recent paradigm that might be called a “critical theory of emotions” with a special focus on the social construction and social critique of emotions. In the third part we will apply emotion philosophy to real world phenomena and problems, especially to education and the climate crisis.
As an “intensive course” this class is meant to focus on developing skills in the reading and writing of philosophical texts. On the one hand, you will carefully study the texts by other philosophers and discuss them in class, in order to learn to reconstruct arguments, understand technical terms, find hidden presumptions etc. And on the other hand, you will get detailed feedback on shorter essays you yourself will write during the semester, providing you with the opportunity to gradually improve your writing skills.
